Suzanne Vega I Never Wear White Lyrics

I Never Wear White by Suzanne Vega

I never wear white
White is for virgins
Children in summer
Brides in the park

My color is black, black, black
Black is for secrets
Outlaws and dancers
For the poet of the dark

Black is the truth
Of my situation
And for those of my station
In life, all other colors lie

I never wear white
White is too blinding
Always reminding
Of the innocent who fall

My color is black, black, black
For the crone and the bastard
The schoolgirl in uniform
The servant in the hall

Black is the truth
Of my situation
And for those of my station
In life, all other colors lie

My color is black, black, black
Like the gangster and widow
It's the shade and the shadow
It's the depth into your eye

My color is black, black, black, black, black
